    Well....this figure got some nice pieces for sure...I bought him about 3 times a few years ago
    Black Uniform...STABO Rig....XM-177...Bandana...Half Finger Gloved hands...pretty cool headsculpt...as a parts supply this is a good figure to get...

    Update it with some cloth ammo pouches,cloth rucksack and canteen covers and you got an up to date MACV-SOG trooper

    Hope my 2 cents help out!!!

    Here's what I did with mine:

    He comes with the old Adam body so you should swap that out for a start, other than that he's good to go.

    CHEERS!

    Yeah, it's also worth bearing in mind that I repainted the sculpt on mine. The original paintwork is terrible.

    CHEERS!

    Ron Watkins is an outstanding figure. Additionally, with all the great gear out today he is a fun figure to update.

    At least you could tie that doo-rag. I was tearing my hair out trying to do that!

    DML also released a gear/uniform set that included Rons gear plus most of Linh the VC scout's uniform and gear. This is cheaper than buying a Ron figure, unless you really want that sculpt and gloves.

    I guess with older DML stuff like this it's a matter of what you can find available. (And where.)

    Very true!

    I actually found my Ron and Mike in an army surplus store! They were absolutely mint but I got them for £25 each!

    CHEERS!

    My local hobby store has had Ron and Oscar for years now, and still at their original MSRP. Every time I see those dusty boxes I think on it awhile, but always say "next time".
